We too loved that Terrecotta shop and bought several small things to take home. I am wondering if anyone took a picture of the shop they would be willing to share?
Re: Arezzo Terrecotta
Welcome to VT jerrismith. Here's a little suggestion. If you see something interesting (like the terracotta shop), post as a reply so people know which shop you are talking about. There are quite a few in Arezzo and without your source, we can't provide photos or information.
If it was posted as a Tip on someone's Travel Pages, post your question as a Comment on that Tip or go to their Home Page and send a VT e-mail (link under their photo) and hope they have a good memory.
Nice to see you here. We're looking forward to seeing your pictures too! 8^)
Travel Tips for Arezzo
Cathedral of St. Donatus.
Built in one of the highest hills of the city this cathedral is a beautiful Gothic structure, it was begun in 1277, continued in 1313 and 1510 but not completed until the 1,900´s. The church was constructed in the architectural style of the Mendicant Order. The interior has many works of art with some splendid multicoloured glass windows by Guillaume de Marcillat (16th century). Under the high altar there´s the tomb and relics of St. Donatus.
Fresco in an official building.
My friend Ileana took me to this governement building (i can´t remember the name of the building, or where it is) with a big reunion hall, containing a very interesting fresco wich depicts some famous persons of the city as Petrarca, Vasari, Piero Della Francesca and Guido D´arezzo. The building is not on the beaten track, so there are no touristic visits.
